Parker Hagarty RCA 1859 – 1934
Canadian/British landscape and figure painter in oils and watercolours
Parker Hagarty was born in Canada on 27th September 1859. By 1871, the family had moved to the UK and was living in Everton, Lancashire. He studied at the Liverpool School of Art and later at the Academie Julian in Paris under Bouguereau. His sister, Mary Hagarty, is also a well-known artist. He was a member of the Liver Sketching Club in the 1890s and on the Committee in 1881.
By 1891 he was lodging in Cardiff, where he lived for many years. He was a founder member of the South Wales Art Society. He was elected a Member of the Royal Cambrian Academy in 1900. In 1901, he was living in Walberswick in Suffolk with his wife Laura, but returned to Cardiff, where he died in 1934.
He was a painter in oils and watercolours, initially painting landscapes but later turned to portraits and nudes in landscapes.
